Amenities & Services


Each residence hall has a centralize mail located within the building or complex. Mail is sorted daily by in-hall staff and on a limited basis during break periods (Thanksgiving Recess, Winter Break, Spring Break, and Easter Recess). University Housing also provides mail-forwarding services when you move out of your residence hall room temporarily for the summer months or permanently when you move off-campus. McFadden Hall is the only exception as the U.S. Postal Service delivers and handles these building's mail. Any mail-forwarding must be set up through U.S.P.S.

Mail is typically sorted by the end of a business day. Please see your front desk or building office for specific sort-by times.

Laundry Services

Each residence hall has an in-hall/complex laundry facility, which includes a washer and dryer. Laundry machines are rented using quarters and Coyote Cash. In Coyote Village, only Coyote Cash may be used. Students are expected to provide their own laundry detergent and fabric softener, as well as collect their laundry in a reasonable amount of time after washed and/or dried.
